MTR new version: READ argument no longer works


    Feb 09 2021 | 12:28 pm
    For MTR, with the last version of Max, READ filename (symbol) no longer works, using TXT file ou JSON, well always documented in the reference manual.
    Note that the file was written by the same MTR instance and can be read and loaded using READ (with no argument) that opens a search dialog window.
    Thank you for helping, because my demo for the next IRCAM forum in Paris doesn't work anymore since the last Max update.
    Macos Big Sur 11.2 - Max 8.1.8 See the test patch and an exemple TXT file Charles P.

      Another annoying thing: the mtr-maxhelp is not coherent with the reference about leftmost output: help: three-item list (track delta absolute-time) reference: output-list: two-item list
      but it is easy to work around by using an additional unpack

      This is a workaround. Hope the next Max version will solve the problem.

      max 8.1.10 just went out the other day with a fix for that, did you try ?

      Yes, Vichug, I tried 8.1.10, but READ was still unable to understand a filename including the full path like "MacIntosh HD/ etc..etc/filename.txt. As seen recently with the Cycling' support, READ understands "filename.txt" if ""MacIntosh HD/ etc..etc" is in the Max search path. So I added the above workaround that temporarily modifies the search path to continue to use my project. Hope that will help...
